PMO Capability Development
Enterprise program management (EPM) capabilities elevate the project management office (PMO) by providing true value in line with the overall corporate strategy.
There is no one-size-fits-all when creating or optimizing a PMO. We work together to understand your unique needs, outline the benefits of an EPM and PMO within your organization, and define the current state of maturity and effectiveness. Then we establish a vision and future-state operating model for the EPM and PMO based on what is appropriate for your organization.
Our comprehensive methodology and supporting toolkits rapidly improve your EPM with a focus on building internal capabilities to continually improve the function.
